Could it be a fuse? The gauge on the left with the fuel display is working fine
Try hitting the dashboard. And no, I'm not joking. Could be something as simple as a loose connection, and while it still needs to be looked at by the dealer, it could get you your lights back until you can get to the dealer. You'd be surprised how many electrical problems can be fixed by just using a little physical force. Or as I like to say, beating it into submission. I work on electronics for a living in the Navy.
